Stonehenge in Wiltshire is an ancient stone circle and prehistoric site, which at its inception may have been a place of worship and celebration at the time of Summer Solstice (the longest day of the year).
In modern times thousands still visit the site at this auspicious time of year, to watch the sunset and sunrise through the stones. The perfect alignment of the sun through the stones, is visually awe inspiring and a must-see.
English Heritage encourages visitors to the site at this special time of year to travel sustainably; to help protect this ancient British site. Salisbury Reds are proudly providing special shuttle buses - service 333, from Salisbury to the Stonehenge site from 6.30pm on Tuesday 20th June and from Wednesday 21st June from 4am-10am back to Salisbury; so you can get there easily and sustainably.
